Respect

A couple of nights ago, the Miami Heat visited the Detroit Pistons. A fan taunted LeBron James, making crude insinuations about James’ mother.

Now, just hearing this alone, most people who have been to a sporting event would find this less than shocking. Heckling fans are ruthless and foul. Most athletes ignore everything fans throw at them.

Not LeBron. Not that night, anyway.

James replied to the fan’s comments with “I don’t care what you say to me, I don’t give a [expletive] what you say. But don’t be disrespectful.”

Say whatever you want about LeBron James, he has morals and you don’t disrespect a man’s mother to his face and get away with it. The fan is lucky LeBron was on the court because I can guarantee you in any other setting, that’s a hospital bed ending.

Good for LeBron and I hope the fan’s in hiding.
